baby picture frame..very long post today

well some thing very different from me today........ a picture frame for a baby picture. my mum asked me (before we all were ill with the tummy bug) if i could make a frame for a friend, as a present, who has just become a grandmother to Emma , it is to go into one of those glass frames with no edges ( does that make sense?) - just glass front, frameless.

well now feeling better i thought i had better get started before the baby has it`s first birthday.....so cut out the paper to size and cut around (leaving a little edge) a photo of mine to get the size of a "normal photo" in the middle for my mums friend to put a photo.

think this maybe a long post , so please sit down with a cup of tea!!!


how to start ?? a sketch always helps, so used the fab sketch over on;~
